I know this is silly, but does anyone know what Phillips, Lopez, and now even Homer bailey have around their necks? It looks cool and I want one!!! Sorry for the fashion interuption. I'll try to not let it happen again.

I'm pretty sure that they are titanium necklaces from a company called Phiten. They are designed to reduce fatigue and stress. But I haven't ever really paid that much attention to BP or Lopez, but I will look at some pictures to be sure if this is it or not.

That's what they are.

Don't know how or if they actually work, though.

I think they're replacing greenies these days because lots of guys are wearing them.

Weird, I wonder if they do anything.

How much do they cost?

Here's some language taken from the site:

"Micro-sized Titanium balls"

You can also get those from taking titanium steroids

A lot of the players on the Japanese national team also wore them during the World Baseball Classic.

Here's a web site that debunks some of the hype on Phiten

I noticed last night that there were several players wearing them. I had wondered what they were.

I really doubt the necklace does much of anything by itself.

However, anything that you think works, likely does to some degree.
